Description

Eureka! Got the ICC profile non-sense sorted out by shifting my monitor's calibration back to sRGB emulation vs Adobe RGB.

Went through some old data and found that two of my images overlap somewhat and figured I would give this a shot.

I seriously dislike mosaics in LRGB. They are a glorious pain in the ass ... something as simple as a 2 panel mosaic with these enormous fields of view presents a set of challenges that does not exist with the smaller fields of view that I'm having a hard time over coming.

I can most certainly see that proper flat field calibration is an absolute must + an accurate gradient removal. Without these two steps mastered, even a relatively simple 2 panel makes me want to scream.

For the guys that build these out 10+ with the similar FOVs I have so much bloody respect for you.

I'm so over this... for now.
